With sexy dresses being one of the biggest trends of 2017, Morilee by Madeline Gardner has the perfect selection of gowns that can help you show skin the right way on your wedding day.

All About The Back

Going with a strapless gown allows you to show off those toned arms while still feeling feminine and sophisticated.

The Deep V

Strategic Beading

These gowns have beautifully strategically placed beads and crystals that give them a sexy yet glamorous feel.

Crop Tops and Sheer Paneling

Are a great way to share just a peekaboo of skin. Showing just the right amount of midriff.


Planning An Outdoor Wedding

It’s spring – and there’s more than just love in the air. There’s the scent of fresh flowers in bloom, the sound of birds chirping and the sight of greenery growing anew. A delight to all the senses, spring is the perfect time of year to be outside – and to host an outdoor wedding. So how do you make yours stand out among the bunch? Find a unique theme that brings out the best of the season. Here are a few ideas for spring weddings, including dresses to help you play the part.

Consider having your spring wedding in a rose garden, which offers an inherently romantic setting with natural beauty. For the décor: Since the ceremony will already be filled with flowers from the surrounding garden, go another route with the aisle decorations. Keep it simple, tying lace ribbon into an over-sized bow and fastening it to each of the chairs nearest to the inside aisle. A bird cage also makes a great decoration – and can be used to collect wedding cards on the gift table. For the dress: Keep the theme going by incorporating flowers into your wedding day accessories. Wear a flower brooch over your heart or tie a sash with a removable flower around your waistline.

    Despite an eight-year relationship that somehow managed to achieve monogamy for most of 2010, it appears that my hot and heavy affair with the Bravo Network might finally have run its course. A famous New Englander once said, “Nothing gold can stay,” and I guess deep down I always suspected that this would happen, but that doesn’t relieve the sting, or worse, the disillusionment.
